Toronto Raptors rewrite the record books in Game 4 win over Brooklyn Nets

It was a historic day for the Toronto Raptors who defeated the Brooklyn Nets in Game 4 to complete their first series sweep in franchise history.

But the series sweep wasn't the only history made in Sunday's 150-122 victory.

Take a look at the three franchise records and one NBA record the Raptors broke in the blowout win to close out the first round.

77 - Most points in a playoff half, franchise record

The Raptors didn't play with their food in Game 4, taking it to the Nets from the jump.

They only held a nine-point leading going into the half, but their 77 points set a franchise record for points in a playoff half. Led by Serge Ibaka's 19 points on near-perfect shooting (9-10 FG) and Norman Powell's 16 points, Toronto's bench set the tone.

Pascal Siakam (12 points) was the only other player in double figures while Marc Gasol, OG Anunoby and Fred VanVleet each chipped in more than five points.

The Raptors shot 59.2% (29-for-46) from the field and 33.3% (6-for-18) from 3 while converting 13 of their 15 free throw attempts to help set this record.

150 - Most points in a playoff game, franchise record

The scoring didn't stop in the first half as Toronto would go on to pile on 73 more points after halftime.

After setting a new franchise record for points in a playoff game with 134 in Game 1, the Raptors outdid themselves by posting 150 points in Game 4 to re-write that record.

They would finish the game shooting 55.4% (56-for-101) from the field, 46.8% (22-for-47) from 3 and 72.7% (16-for-22) from the charity stripe.

39 - Most assists in a playoff game, franchise record

All that scoring had to come from somewhere.

The Raptors were sharing the ball at a historic rate in the win, setting a playoff franchise record with 39 assists. Spearheading that total was All-Star forward Siakam, who dished out a career-high 10 assists in the contest.

Aside from Siakam's breakout game as a playmaker, Gasol and VanVleet each had five assists, followed by Stanley Johnson's four assists and Kyle Lowry's three assists (in only nine minutes of playing time).

Every player that touched the floor for Toronto had at least one assist in the contest.

100 - Most bench points in a game, NBA record

Yes, you're reading this right. The Raptors bench produced 100 points in the Game 4 victory.

Powell - who set an individual franchise record for points off the bench in a playoff game - handled the bulk of that scoring load with 29. He was followed by Ibaka's 27 points, with Terence Davis (14 points) and Matt Thomas (12 points) each chipping in double figures for the lump sum.

This NBA record stands for both the regular season and playoffs.

The regular season record was previously held by the Golden State Warriors back in 1970-71 with 94 points.

The playoff record was previously held by the Dallas Mavericks with 86 points in 2011.
